Fellow SHSers may be interested to read an article on my brother Jed Hilly (SHS class of '79) that just came out in the March issue of Nashville Arts Magazine.
I thought I would mention that he is a graduate of the SHS Alternative School, and also Hampshire College. I am proud and feel privileged to be the sister of the Executive Director of the Americana Music Association. To see my brother in action I get to witness that which we were working toward back in the 70's with the creation of the "A School"-preparing students for creative careers in areas they were passionate about. Plus I have been able to hear some really amazing artists playing the most awesome music!
Also in the article you will see a photograph of Jed with Roseanne Cash and her husband and Producer John Levanthal, also an SHS grad.
